The Empress

Restaurant near Victoria Park

The Empress is a lovely gastro pub / restaurant near Victoria Park Village with a cosy feel and friendly staff. The menu changes regularly and they keep it simple with 5 / 6 dishes on offer.

For starters, we chose the Parmesan Fritters and the Spicy cod and salmon fritters. Both dishes were filling and flavoursome with the coating not too oily.

For mains we opted for the Lamb and the Cote De Bouef for two with chunky chips, spinach and béarnaise sauce. The fattiness of both dishes gave them so much flavour.


Expect good quality at this restaurant in Victoria Park but be prepared to pay a little more than usual. Also, keep an eye out for the restaurant’s special deals on a Monday and Tuesday. On Monday, you can have a main course (they seem to change on the website every week or two) and a glass of fizz or a pint for only £10. On a Tuesday evening, they offer BYOB from Bottle Apostle across the road for no corkage fee. A much cheaper night out early in the week!
